Lent Addresses

March 2020

During Lent this year, which begins on Wednesday 26th February, we will be running two programmes of Lent addresses on Sundays in March. At the Cathedral Eucharist at 9.45am, the addresses will be based on the theme of ‘The Way of Christ’ and at Evensong at 3pm on Sundays, the theme will be ‘The Church’s Modern Mission’. Some of the Evensong addresses will be followed by seminars and tea.
